Subject: I would not recommend this
Subject: Carefully Stated...Very Matter Of Fact
I noticed that every word and phrase in the narrative was carefully chosen - all for accuracy's sake - clearly no political purpose. something one almost never sees these days.
To many, the points made in this film are quite obvious. From my observations (back to the mid 1950's) this film makes perfect sense. I remember in the mid to late 1950's rural people and old timers were a world apart from the urban middle aged folks. It would take 15 to 20 more years for oldsters to, as they say "get cool, get with it."
This film has excellent historical import for those of the sociology ilk.

Having been born in 1956, I was raised in this manner. However, I have yet to see many men helping with the housework.
I am female, and a full time carpenter. I also cook, clean, wash, etc.
This film is very valuable, and in very good condition. I recommend it to everyone.
